More than 95 years ago, as the Titanic slowly sank, a "mystery" ship was seen as she slipped below the waves. Thinking it would be their salvation, rockets were fired from Titanic to attract the unknown ship, but to no avail. With 1,500 souls on board the Titanic foundered, but what of the mystery ship? At the subsequent inquiries, Captain Stanley Lord and his vessel, the Californian, were accused of ignoring the Titanic's distress calls. Thomas B. Williams unearthed a host of new and important evidence that prompted the British government to reopen the case surrounding Captain Lord and effectively proved that the much maligned captain and his ship could not have been the mystery ship seen from the decks of the doomed Titanic. Gathered in this intriguing volume are his most noted findings and discoveries.
